    Thanks :) Yeah, really expensive, but really, really good. Granddad turned 80, so we were celebrating (whgich is actually why the relatives were in in the first place).

    So, what have I missed?

    That's nice of you. I always find myself wishing Spring Break was two weeks. Really summer is SO long one week would not make a difference. And it would make a HUGE difference now.

    Think of it this way: you've got several more weeks of summer than I do (I'm sure). But yes, spring break was very much needed. I had an awful week right before with a term paper due and at least one test in every class, so I was very glad for the break.

    See I would rather have more time at Spring Break. If one does not take Summer term (and it is optional) then one has like 3.5 MONTHS of break. I find that completely excessive. I'd be fine with 2 months with the rest of the time spread out among the existing breaks between terms.

    True. And I NEED a nice break in the middle of second semester because of being overloaded. But I wouldn't say no to a longer summer; ten weeks could go to twelve IMO.

    We are on terms, so we have three 10 week terms, for Fall, Winter and Spring.

    How was your day?

    I think this weekend has the potential to be great. I'm off from work on Monday and Tuesday as well so I expect to read quite a bit.

    I too have things to do, but today I've just relaxed.

    Anyway, August is not that far away in time.

    True. Before I know it, I will have a degree and will have to re-enter the workforce.

    Today my family is all coming over to my sort-of new apartment for a grilling party! :D

    What are you studying?

    Grill parties are great :D. I'm going to one on Monday. I just hope the weather will be good enough.

    I lucked out. The weather today is gorgeous.

    I am majoring in Liberal Arts and German Language with a minor in Film Studies.

    Ooh, great! I did Liberal Arts too.

    BTW, I noticed your signature. I think "Anakin's Betrayal" is my favourite track from the ROTS soundtrack.

    Have fun!!!

    I still have 5 years to go, and that's in I don't go to grad school :( I'd loooove a day off, but I'd be in theory studying for AP exams (which are in less than two weeks and I haven't started studying for).

    Good luck with your exams!

    I can't believe I did 19 years in school (primary school, high school and university)....
